Fort Myers Criminal Defense Lawyers Defending Against Computer Crime Charges
Crimes involving the use of phones, computers and other devices are increasingly common. In response, state and federal laws have been put in place, calling for harsh penalties for individuals convicted of identity theft, credit card fraud and other technology-based crimes. The criminal justice system is often unforgiving. Competent, experienced criminal defense representation is crucial to protecting your rights and freedom if you have been accused of a cybercrime.
If you have been visited or questioned by federal agents, or if your phone or computer has been seized, or if you believe you are under investigation, the time to act is now. Do not wait. Once federal criminal charges have been filed, the opportunity to negotiate for lesser criminal charges may be diminished significantly. Whatever your situation may be, you need strong defense representation as soon as possible.
